Last week we had the visit of our Dutch colleagues of ACTA and Ocello, partners in one of the Euopean projects that we are involved about Bone on a Chip. During two days we explained our developments of the last 6 months and discuss about possible improvements in the different areas involved in the design and validation of the new device.
The website of Orchid has been inaugurated this month. We are glad to help in the communication of this project that plans to disseminate the Organ on Chip technology to scientists, industry and society in general. We would like to congratulate the University of Zaragoza for being part of this initiative that will show to the world the importance of OoC technologies to reduce animal experimentation and reproduce as best as possible the human body on the laboratory.
Last Friday 26th we did a small workshop of our products to EYOWN Technologies, a biotech company from Madrid, specialized in the optimization of laboratory processes through instrumentation and Biocomputing tools.
This week we are travelling to Paris to attend the kick off of a challenging European project called “Heart On chip based on induced pluripotent Stem cell Technology for personalized Medicine”.
The main goal of this project is to create a heart on a chip model by using microfluidics and developing a platform for cardiomyocytes-iPSCs. These human-induced pluripotent stem cells are very useful in OoC devices because they are derived in a patient-matched manner making them a great element for personalized medicine.
